I was surfing the net a couple of weeks ago, and came across one of those blogsites that was talking - and posting pictures - about their recent trip. In this particular case, the trip was through Ireland.

There was a pretty good-sized group on this tour. On one of their longer bus rides, the tour guide suggested a limerick contest for those who were awake and wanting something creative to do.

All of the entries were posted on their blogsite. This was the winning one ... ...

There once was a surgeon from Dallas
With a camera he loved like his phallus

He took pictures all day
Of the hills, town and bay

And developed a fingertip callous.

Well, ever since then a few limericks have gone through my mind. Here are a couple ... ...

There once was a young lady named Suzie
Whom everyone thought quite the floozie

She pranced here and there
With her chin in the air

Then went home to enjoy her jacuzzi!

There once was a young lady from Houston
Who yearned to get away from pollution

She relocated to Nome
Where the sun never shone

And thought, "This is not the solution!"

Limericks are fun. Try one!

Cannot begin to imagine taking even HALF of eleven hundred photographs. Heavens to Betsy!

There is always one person who has to be bigger than so and so or done more than whomever, and today that one person is moi. I can take 1600 images in one day without batting an eyelid. At the concert on friday night last I took 1500, last night at the auction I took 900. I don't want to miss a thing!

But, I digress, i loved the limericks and couldn't help wonder if the last one was tinged with a little Golden light?!!!
